(4 out of 5 stars)

"This performance of Bach's Art of Fugue is an analog recording originally released in 1986. Savall's vision seems even more curiously focused. For instance, not only is the use of keyboard continuo eschewed, but Savall also structures the ensemble groupings more rigidly, distinctly separating the winds and strings in non-tutti movements. This, combined with Savall's inordinately slow tempos heightens the work's sense of grandeur, making Bach's architectural elements seem more powerfully deliberate. Alessandrini takes an almost exactly opposite, though no less distinguished and worthy approach. Listening this recording in SACD format broadens the sound stage and marginally heightens the instrumental clarity. Recommended."
